I recently bought an Earthshaker. The text on a few of the inserts near the flippers is worn most of the way off. The previous owner said there are "waterslide" decals available to fix the missing insert text. I looked around and was able to find these decals from Classic Arcades: https://classic-arcades.com/shop?keywords=earthshaker&olsPage=products%2Fdr-who-insert-decals I don't see any mention of these being "waterslide" decals.

I've never done an insert decal. What is the procedure for doing it? Would I remove the remaining text that is on the insert, lay down the decal then mylar over it?

The decal is printed on mylar, you can use water to slide on, or just stick on.
Yes need to remove old remaining text.

Cool, thanks for the info! What is the best way to remove the old text?
